Another Day in Paradise


There are some days that are so much better than others. The recent crappy weather has really gotten on my nerves.

Today was the exception. What a wonderful day in paradise. The traffic was always going the other way. I was always going in the right direction. The sun was always shining on my day. People everywhere were smiling.

I ran into a guy in Broomfield with a t shirt that said "My guns are always loaded." It was a Nike shirt. When I commented on his shirt he said that he had lost over 500 pounds recently. He looked great. I told him that I worked out every day. 100 push ups. 100 sit ups. Six miles on the treadmill. An hour of Yoga. That I was pushing 70.

Then came his 500 pounds.

He won the contest. I told him that he looked great and that I was very proud of him. Did not know him and had never seen him before and will never see him again. He made my day and I hope I made his.
